Once you’ve secured a job (as a college student), how do you keep motivation up? Struggling with motivation, mental health, and the purpose to school now that I have a role lined up.
Hey Everyone! I’m new to Fishbowl, but excited to connect. I’m looking to transition to consulting! I’m a licensed social worker with a background in healthcare- utilization management and change management. Any leads on new opportunities? Thanks in advance!
I've been taking the past few months off in order to work on my mental health and learn new technologies that are popular in my industry. How long a gap can I take before it sends warning signs to employers?
Anyone know about health related opportunities at FAANG? I’m EM w/ 5YOE in our health practice with MD background and curious what roles/skills I might be suited for.
Consulting and govt work has taken a toll on my mental health. Need to switch careers entirely but I’m back to not knowing what I want to do. What other lines of work can I transfer my skills to?
Thinking about what we can go back to doing as part of a Montessori primary children's house, assuming the district/public health allows us to.
Hello folks - wondering if you can guide me regarding insurance for your watch - any recommendations?
CGI or CACI? CGI: 107k base, match50% up to 4% max of $2500, health deductible is 2k 🙃 i believe annual raise is 2% (at most). Or stay at CACI: 86k, match50% up to 8%, deductible is 600, annual raise 3%.
Do you have life insurance? What co do you use / how much do you pay / are you happy with them? Thanks in advance!
My mental health is really suffering because of family drama. Primarily, it's the toxic sexism in my culture (Indian)- feels very unfair how my mom and I get treated, especially by the males (and some toxic females) in the family. Any advice on how to navigate the double standards and lack of decency/respect? I do have a therapist but don't feel as supported with this. Just feeling really depressed, so any constructive thoughts/advice is super helpful.
Hi ladies- can you tell me what you pay in premiums for your healthcare? My employer is saying they’re competitive in the market but I don’t think that’s the case and I’d like to negotiate based on that. Monthly premium for you (and fam if@you have kids?)
What’s the cost range of health insurance for a young family of four if you are self employed?
Has anyone submitted and HR complaint against a leader who has made comments about attending a drs. appointment and comments about health issues? Curious on process and any impact to you
Can someone please suggest a good dental insurance? Don’t want to wait for another qualifying event.
I’m 30, with no kids, currently paying $540/mo for a whole life insurance policy through my advisor (family friend, mind you) at NWM. No debt, investing 2k a month into other more traditional investments (e.g., 401k, ira). I care less about the death benefit but I’ve been repeatedly reminded about the guaranteed RoR associated with the cash value - does this investment vehicle make sense to continuing with? TIA!
What is the normal/average out of pocket cost for white fillings? I have pretty good dental insurance and unsure if my dentist is just expensive or it’s costlier than I imagined?
Anyone done a Great Lake family vacation with young kids? Meeting friends and both have a 2 year old. Recs appreciated - Ideally drivable from Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, Cleveland (nonstops). TYIA
How’s A&M viewed as at MBB in comparison to Big 4 in terms of reputation, competitiveness? Does it increase chances to get an interview at MBB coming from A&M vs Big 4? Thanks all!
Ladies who make more money than your partner - did it change them? Just got a new job & now I make substantially more than my husband. He has been 100% thrilled & supportive but funny because before he was very aloof about work. Now he is trying SO MUCH harder. He started dressing professionally, has been volunteering for more projects, and schmoozes with his bosses. I feel like he secretly feels a little competitive and is trying to get a promotion too (which is great!!) but it’s def a shift
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)
How does the salary of those in IB compare to those in MBB first year out of undergrad? What about bonuses?
Now with the Marriott merger, should I get one of the Marriott credit cards? I currently use my CSR for everything. Looking to see what some of your strategies are for travel cards
I have SPG lifetime Gold and apparently Marriott has bumped me up to Platinum Elite status. Here’s to hoping they don’t fix the glitch. Anyone else get accidentally upgraded?
Getting back from a two week 'vacation' exhausted and just as much in need of a break as I was before I left... FML
Got notified that my EAD card is being delivered to my place. Didn’t submit my medical record with I-485 so I’m hoping to receive the RFE for that soon now that EAD is almost here. Has anyone been in the similar situation and did the medical exam before receiving the RFE? Is that allowed? Wanna try to mail out my medical exam as soon as I receive the RFE to cut down time!
Which one should I pick - big four or prestigious investment company? Hi guys I’m currently making a change in my career and I have gotten an offer from big four and accepted it. It’s specialized in one sector. I had communicated the offer deadline with all the companies I interviewed for . Two weeks after I had accepted such said offer, one of the companies I interviewed for called me and said they would like to extend an offer to me as well.
Thinking of heading to Phoenix for a long weekend with my wife. We like to hike but also want hang by the pool and check out the area. What part of town would you recommend we stay? Any good Marriott properties that come to mind?
Long shot but does anyone have a personal shopper at Nordstrom they love? bonus points if they’re in Seattle but I know these things can be done virtually these days 😊
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
NPZ Immigration Lawyers call for Humanitarian Restraint on the part of the US Government given the tragic events that have confronted this family! https://www.univision.com/local/nueva-york-wxtv/lucha-por-no-ser-deportada-el-doble-drama-que-vive-una-abuela-hispana-cuya-hija-tiene-severo-dano-cerebral-video
Employer is in Nyc but I work from home in NJ. Would I save on taxes if I transferred to a Nj office?
MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.
My Apple TV told me the remote battery was low, so it took it to Apple and asked them to change the battery. Oh god, the horror when the guy told me to charge it “like you charge your phone."
